???? 1000 High Wall of Lothric Greirat's Ashes
Bandit's Knife


Greirat of the Undead Settlement is a NPC in Dark Souls 3. Greirat will occasionally ask if he can go and "steal" items for you that he will then sell

Information

Location

  • Initially locked in a cell, below the Tower on the Wall bonfire in High Wall of Lothric. You can find the Cell Key inside of the workshop below the Pus of Man which erupts on the rooftop. After heading down the ladder and defeating the Lothric Knight, follow the stairs at the end of the hall down to the base floor. Several Starved Hounds and Hollow Soldiers will be patrolling the area. The key is located at the back wall, down a flight of stairs which leads to a Starved Hound and eventual dead end.
  • After accepting his request he appears at the Firelink Shrine as a vendor, asking you to remember about his request when talked to.
  • You can find Loretta's Bone past the Undead Settlement bonfire. It is on a corpse hanging from the balcony of the first house the player will enter, overlooking a congregation in front of a burning tree.
  • After delivering Loretta's Bone, he will tell the player to keep the ring, but other than that will not react. Once the world is reset, however, he will be in a curled up position and will give the player the Curl Up gesture, while remaining unresponsive. Once the player leaves and enters Firelink Shrine once more, he will ask for permission to scavenge for more items. He will return following the next boss kill and can return as early as after Curse-Rotted Greatwood.

Greirat's Questline

Summary :

  1. Rescuing Greirat
  2. Delivering Loretta's Bone
  3. Greirat's first outing
  4. Greirat's second outing (to Irithyll, where he will die unless his rescue by either Patches or Siegward is ensured)
  5. Greirat's third outing (to Lothric Castle, where he will die regardless of the player's actions)

1. Rescuing Greirat :

  1. From the High Wall of Lothric's Tower on the Wall bonfire, head down to the dark room with the broken floor and exit through the door on the right. Cross the rooftops where you encounter the Pus of Man, climb down the ladder on the right, and enter the building below.
  2. After dealing with the spear-wielding Lothric Knight, head all the way down to a room guarded by dogs and Great Axe wielding hollows.  Behind black powder barrels is a semi-hidden staircase where you can find the key to Greirat's cell.
  3. From the Tower on the Wall bonfire, head down one floor, and follow the hallway that is inside the tower.  You will eventually run into Greirat's cell.
  4. Unlock the cell and speak to Greirat. Accept his help.

2. Helping Greirat with Loretta :

  1. Talk to Greirat in Firelink Shrine, and he will speak to you about Loretta.
  2. From the Undead Settlement Bonfire, second after the Vordt of the Boreal Valley boss fight, you will immediately find a building that is dark inside.
  3. On the balcony, you will see a a corpse with loot on it.  Attack it to make it fall, and you will find Loretta's bone.
  4. Give Greirat Loretta's bone.

3. Greirat's First Outing :

You must visit the Undead Settlement after sending Greirat on his first mission to trigger him to leave the Firelink Shrine for the first time. If you are having trouble getting Greirat to leave Firelink, try warping to the Dilapitated Bridge bonfire, cross the bridge and make your way through the ruins to the Road of Sacrifices.

4. Greirat's Second Outing, (Irythll Dungeon) 

Saved by Siegward :

  • To trigger his second scavenging quest, cross the bridge between the Catacombs and the Boreal Valley.
  • Send Greirat on his second outing - Before killing Pontiff Sulyvahn, after Greirat has returned from his first outing, which is giving Greirat Loretta's bone.
  • Get Siegward in Place - 1. Before the Pontiff Sulyvahn boss fight, even after lighting the Church of Yorshka and Distant Manor bonfires.   2. Which must be after speaking to Siegward at the fireplace just above the sewers in Irythll 3. Siegward must be given his Caterina armor, (See Siegward's questline) near the Cleansing Chapel bonfire. 3. Which is after helping Siegward kill the fire demon, just before the Road of Sacrifices bonfire.
  • Bug / Glitch : NG+ Remove Caterina set from your inventory to avoid glitches.  Patches' spawn points above Firelink Shrine can be problematic, and /or he may not rescue Greirat on his own.  Perhaps - In this case, give your armor set to Siegward and do NOT purchase the Catarina Set from Patches until Greirat is rescued.

Or, Saved by Patches :

  • You must send Greirat out to Irithyll and inform Patches of his destination before you defeat Pontiff Sulyvahn or he will cease to ask.
  • Of course, if you buy the Catarina Set, Patches won't have a disguise to rescue Greirat, dooming him.

Second Outing Failure Conditions :

  • On failure, Greirat's corpse and ashes will be in the sewer area underneath the kitch in Irythll.
  • Patches will not rescue Greirat - even if you send Greirat on his second outing after the Yorm the Giant boss fight, and Siegward has died.
  • Do NOT kill Alva the Spurned, who invades when embered - just before the Irithyll Dungeon Bonfire.
  • Do not proceed within Irythll Dungeon.  It has been reported that you may light that bonfire, if perhaps Alva the Spurned has not been killed.
  • Bug / Glitch : Remove Siegward's armor from your inventory before finding Siegward in the well, or encountering Patches in the Cathedral.  If Patches' spawn at the Cathedral of the Deep or Firelink Shrine are bugged and you can't purchase Siegward's armor - it might be possible to give Siegward the armor that you have.  If this succeeds, it has been reported that buying the armor again from Patches might fail the quest.
  • Unnecessary : It is certainly unnecessary to drink the Estus Soup next to Siegward when he is at the fireplace.  It may perhaps be a requirement to NOT drink it, somehow helping Greirat to survive.

Tried and Failed :

  • [UNCONFIRMED] As a fail safe, be sure to clear out the Sewer Centipede before proceeding to defeat Sulyvahn. Note : If Alva the Spurned has been killed, this does not seem to matter.

Player notes:

  • I gave Siegward his armour before doing the Catamcombs and sent Greirat to pillage once I had lit the Central Irithyll bonfire. I then beat the Old Demon King and found Greirat safe at Firelink. (CONFIRMED)
  • I sent Greirat out for pillage in Irythill after defeating Pontiff, then killed the fire demon with Siegward and opened the main door to trigger the well location. Went back to buy his armor for the quest line and Patches still asked about Greirat's whereabouts.

5. Greirat's Third Outing (Lothric Castle) :

 Third Outing Tried and Failed :

  • Killed Yoel of Londor upon meeting, Leonhard, Londor Pale Shade invasions, and Yellowfinger Heysel.
  • Killed Patches in firelink shrine, given that he goes "hollow" in the Ringed City - and might kill Greirat.
  • Waited until after Twin Princes boss fight to send Greirat, still failed.

Player Notes :

He will request to leave for a third time to Lothric Castle. He will die if he goes; there is no known way to save him. Patches will ask where Greirat went, but this only causes Patches to disappear for a time. Patches will return later and add one Hidden Blessing to his shop inventory, while failing to save Greirat.

Greirat's Ashes can be found on the roof at the Grand Archives, after jumping down where you see a group of Corvians. Giving Greirat's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid will allow her to sell Exploding and Splintering Bolts, along with every other item he used to sell. Additionally, items which were sold by both NPCs (like Firebombs) are overwritten by Greirat's lower prices (50 souls for a Firebomb, instead of 100).

Greirat's Ashes will only unlock the wares that he was selling before he died.
Killing Greirat while both Patches and Greirat are in Firelink Shrine will make Patches hostile toward you.

Dialogue

 

First encounter (High Wall of Lothric)

"Ahh, you're no jailer are you? No, no, you're from far away.  And judging by the bell... You must be some of that unkindled ash.  Remarkable, if that's true, then i have a favour to ask.  Below the High Wall is a musty little town.  Not the home of any lord, just a very old settlement of Undead. An old woman, Loretta, lives there.  Please give her this ring.  I- I am not asking for charity.  In fa- in fact if you do this for me... I'll be sure to repay you in kind.  I-I may be a petty thief, but I've more wits than most royalty.  What do you say, then?"

[Refuse] "Yes, well, why should you? But if you change your mind, give me a shout, eh? I-I'm only a petty thief. I've nowhere else to go. Not like there's anything calling to me out there.. heh"

[After Refusing] "Oh, what have we here? Changed your mind perhaps? You deliver the ring, and I offer my co-operation. Hardly a shabby deal, hm?"

[Grant Request] "Very well. I humbly place my faith in you.  I am Greirat of the Undead Settlement, and I promise to assist you.  Give this ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  ...Do your part, and I'll do mine."

[Attacking him] "Cold piss, what the devil is it now?  I get caught once, and now this!  One bloody time! Curse the gods!"

[You die] "As they say,  "The cornered rat will lick the balls of a cat." "

[Killing him] "(Forgive me, mother.) Forgive me, dear..."

 

Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

"Oh, hello, you're back.  And in one piece. Well, now it's time I do my part.  Whatever trinket you need, speak up.  Just don't ask me where I got them."

[Talk] "Do me a favour, and don't forget our promise.  Give the [this] ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  A nuisance, I know, but it'll help me tie up some loose ends."

Give Loretta's Bone

"Heavens, she was already dead...  Thank you. I-I'm not surprised, though.  Hmm, almost a relief, really.  You can keep the ring.  As, well, a little trinket of thanks, I suppose."

[Leave] "Goodbye, and stay safe.  Oh, this place is a bore. What good is thievery if you've nowhere to go?"

[Attacking him] "You're heading for the brink aren't you?  Well I won't let you drag me down!  En guarde, you crusty ash bastard!"

[You die] "Cold piss, why did it come to this..."

[Killing him] "(Cries) I've gone and run my course, haven't I?"

 

Pillage (Undead Settlement)

"Ah, there you are. I was thinking...  You know I'm a petty thief.  Well, perhaps I'll go on the prowl.  Everyone's dead or hollowed away anyway, right, so...  I might as well fetch some weapons or treasure for you.  Well, what do you say?"

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that's your wish I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I wouldn't want to lose my touch..."

[Talk] "What is it? Have you changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you. You will not be disappointed.  Greirat the Thief was once a well-known name.  Until I ended up rotting in a cell..."

[Leave] "Good-bye. I will leave for some time. So long for now.  Do stay safe, you hear? Or my efforts will have been for naught."

[Return] "Oh, hello, you've come at a good time.  It took some prowling, but I've finally made a score.  Go on, have a gander."

 

Pillage (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley)

"Ahh, hello, fine work, I say.  Discovering Irithyll in the Boreal Valley, all in a day's work.  If the tales are true, it is home to old moon-worshipping nobles, and should be packed with treasure.  What do you think? Shall I go and see what I can find?

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that is your wish, I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I hate to leave a city of nobles ripe for the picking..."

[Talk] "What is it? Changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Mm, a fine choice!  I am greirat, the thief. What I bring back will be worthy of that name."

[Return] "Oh, then, we are both safe and sound.  Thank the gods for that. I don't like cutting things so close.  I might've died if it wasn't for that peculiar onion knight.  But in the end, it all paid off.  Take a good look. They're sure to be of some use."

 

Pillage (Lothric Castle)

"You know, I was thinking...  About leaving for another round of thieving.  There must be something of use in Lothric Castle.  I-I'm aware of the danger. That castle is a death trap.  Not a single man has returned from the castle unscathed, even back in the day.  But I don't want sit around and die a petty rat.  And I consider myself your friend."

[Refuse] "Right, fine. You're very thoughtful, you are.  But, if you change your mind, do speak up.  I meant every word of what I said."

[Talk] "Changed your mind?  I hope you do. I lived a petty rat, but would rather not die as one."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you, for placing your trust in me.  Oh, don't you worry. I know Lothric like the back of my hand."

 

Trivia

  • Greirat is voiced by Stephane Cornicard, who also did the voice of Gavlan in Dark Souls 2.
  • The hat he is wearing is a Thrall Hood. It is said that people who wear the Thrall hood are either slaves or criminals.
  • When Patches takes residence in the Firelink Shrine he mentions that Greirat did him a good turn in Lothric Dungeon.
  • Selling him the Blue Tearstone Ring after giving him Loretta's Bone does not change his dialogue.
  • There was previously a typo in one of Greirat's dialogues. His sentence " I am Greirat of the Undead Settlement, and I promise to assist you." was previously missing a "t" in the word settlement, making it read "Setlement". This was fixed in a later patch.

          Had Greirat waiting for 3rd outing. I killed everyone expect Midr, Nameless King, Gael, Lothric Brothers, and soul of cinder, even did other side quests (with intention to get all achievements by the way).

          I saw a post on here saying to kill enemies in Grand Archives, and I went thru most of building, but focused on killing all Gargoyles up top (since he dies near the Gargoyles at Grand Archives)

          Then went back to shrine and sent Greirat out to Lothric. Also I killed patches at the same time.

          Currently: I am wearing Catarina armor. Maybe a summon sign near? I did not see his ashes - will look more for anything new . If nothing new I will just kill Lothric brothers and return to see if his ashes are at his typical last ashes spot in the Grand Archives.

            You can save Greirat on his second outing, even after defeating Pontiff! (And Aldrich even)

            I accidently sent him on his second trip (Was trying to get to his shop) and decided "***** it, I gotta save him", threw three poison knives to aggro him and then went to get absolution, sadly, however, he was gone from the shrine and I assumed he was dead, so I went to fetch his ashes but they weren't in the spider infested sewer.

            Later I went on to talk to patches to see if he had any wares to interest me and he asked about Greirat, and I sent him off, after defeating Oceiros, I found them both safe and sound back at the shrine, and Greirat happy and jolly to go on a third trip.

              Kill the Dragons. Kill the King. Then send him.
              Source: eurogame.com.
              Tested and it worked. Not sure what to do with Patches. I did not remember what I said to him. Try it!

                  Kill wolnir, send pillage, kill old demon king and you can get extra twinkies, scales and lothric greatsword before even meeting your first Irythill knight

                    Also it is impossible that anri interacts with greirat anri is found in cathedral of the deep, catacombs, road of sacrifice and irythill anri never reaches the lothric castle anri either dies from marriage or horace or turns berserk and is found in the cathedral outside. Impossible that anri and greirat interact. Impossible to save him.

                      To confirm that no logical way to save greirat: i took the grand archives keys, didnt open the grand archives door, send him to pillage, kill old demon king boss, greirat is not found in firelink shrine. I haven't searched for his ashes yet but seems dead to me.

                        Lapp may be able to save greirat with his memory back on greirat lotheric outing. This theory requires lapps quest line to be completed before defeating the twin princes, making Lapps Regain his memory, being able to save greirat.

                          I know it's very unlikely this is an easteregg but this story around "Loretta" who turns out to be dead reminds me of "Rosetta" from Dead Space 3. There we thought aswell she is alive.

                            We were co-oping with my friend. At the start of the game we were going to free Greirat from his cell, but apparently only his ashes were there when we arrived with the cell key. I guess his questline is screwed then from the very begining. Nice bug...

                                So Idk if i managed to save Greirat from dying or not on his third outing, as of right now his corpse and ashes can't be found anywhere in any of the locations where he would normally be. What i did was before sending Greirat out on his 3rd outing, I went to the Grand Archives and killed the 3 NPC's on the stairs, than went back sent him out and than killed the brothers, I didn't send Patches out after him either though he keeps asking about him, I feel like Patches kills him and brings back that Diving Blessing, I'll update if I can find Greirat of if he ever comes shows back up to Firelink Shrine.

                                  "Quest Possibly Bugged / Glitched: There is game audio of Greirat speaking of how Anri saves him in Lothric castle."
                                  This is incorrect. Either this information came before a patch that removed the dialog or it was misunderstood from a separate section of in game dialog. After scouring the game audio files, there is no mention of Anri AND lothric castle. The only mention I could find of Anri was from his return from irithyll dialog tree. The tree I found goes over this audio in 6 sequential sections...
                                  "Oh, then, we are both safe and sound."
                                  "Thank the gods for that. I don't like cutting things so close."
                                  "I might've died if it wasn't for that peculiar onion knight."
                                  "I might have died if it wasn't for that little knight Anri" (possibly unused audio)
                                  "But in the end, it all paid off."
                                  "Take a good look. They're sure to be of some use."
                                  There are only 2 dialog trees for greirat where he mentions returning from somewhere, Undead Settlement and Irithyll of the Boreal Valley There is no audio tree mentioning his return from lothric. He cannot be saved on his 3rd trip. Considering that other unused audio is still in the game, he was never able to be saved. Also, the note that says there is audio but doesn't actually provide the quote. I can only assume the person that wrote that misunderstood the audio.

                                    For the final outing, what if you don't help Anri kill Aldritch, and continue to Lothric Castle? Woul;d he still die, even if Alri sin't hollow?

                                      So Siegward died to the Fire Demon in my playthrough, but I still got Patches to appear in Firelink Shrine after killing the Deacons. If I sell Siegward's Armor to Patches, will he go and save Greirat? I haven't sent Greirat to pillage yet and I haven't been to Irithyll Dungeon yet.

                                        Hey, I rescued Thief Head after I got the loot from Loretta’s corpse, so I went back to get it and it’s just not here. Is there another place it spawns if this happens?

                                          so many "if"s on this page...."if you did that, if you did this"...play normal, help onion knight, avoid the dungeon and no problems what so ever. it's only confusing for people seeking help to listing every (im-) possibility here. and no...the soup or the centipeds play NO role in his survival....he doesn't make a journey people. if you kill a boss before the dungeon he will be in the shrine. It's programmed. he doesnt walk there.

                                            If Siegward is in the kitchens, the trigger to getting Greirat killed seems to be going to the dungeons--so don't venture onto the path to the dungeons from the Distant Manor bonfire until AFTER beating Sulyvahn. I talked with Siegward and left him to nap (didn't drink the estus soup in the pot but healed anyway?), then went back to Firelink and sent Greirat out to pillage. Took care of Sulyvahn, lit the bonfire in his boss room. When I went back to the shrine, Greirat had returned.

                                              If you kill pontiff and THEN send greirat out pillaging will he die even if all other factor are in place?
